Poor marketing performance can be a frustrating, expensive roadblock

When you’ve invested in the growth of your business and you don’t see the anticipated results, it can be a struggle to identify which marketing tactics are working, which aren’t, and how to move forward to achieve desired outcomes.

In this post, we’ll examine:

  • How lack of insight is often the root cause of poor marketing performance
  • How insufficiencies in your marketing campaign can be identified
  • What can happen when you don’t have a clear strategy to address the issues
  • How to solve marketing problems with a proven, practical tool that gets results

How Lack of Insight Leads to Poor Marketing Performance

Modern consumer behavior – and, therefore, the current marketing landscape – is complex. So while every business knows that keeping up with key performance metrics is essential, knowing what to do with all that data is often unclear

It’s easy to lose sight of the big picture when you’re buried in data. Are you focused on the wrong campaigns? Does the issue lie within internal alignment? Is the quality of the data itself poor?

If you want to drive business results from all that information, what you need are insights.

Insights are developed from analyzing the data in the context of your audience and business as a whole, drawing conclusions, and formulating a practical strategy that connects those conclusions to desired results

In other words: meaningful insights are the difference between lackluster marketing and a laser-focused campaign that drives action.

Finding Solutions and Getting Results

As CMOs, we speak with businesses that struggle with poor marketing performance every day. That’s why we developed a simple, yet holistic approach to marketing that lays the groundwork for increased revenue and business growth. 

Using our six marketing fundamentals as a guide, we clear the data fog with a comprehensive marketing audit. During our audit, we conduct an extensive analysis of all aspects of the client’s business, their consumers, the current market landscape, and the alignment of their internal employees. 

The results of the audit deliver:

  • A clear picture of the client’s current marketing plan and its execution
  • Valuable insights to help guide them forward
  • Recommendations designed for immediate implementation

Knowing exactly where to invest your finances, time, and energy eliminates frustration and forges a clear path to success.

Insights in Action

Let’s look at the experience yorCMO Rich Taylor had with a dental implant provider who was frustrated by the poor marketing performance of his practice. For this client, Rich conducted a marketing audit, during which he surveyed key stakeholders and customers and analyzed all available metrics. With his audit’s results, Rich was able to identify the specific problems within the client’s marketing strategy and connect the dots to actionable solutions, organized by impact. 

Partnering with this client to align and prioritize marketing efforts according to this structure over the following 90 days resulted in a 17.5% increase in leads and a 20% increase in prospect arrivals, all while reducing the budget by 40%.

The client stopped wasting resources on strategies that weren’t working, got clear on the specific actions that would connect him to his target market, and landed the results he’d been looking for.
